Having stayed here several times in the past and enjoyed it, we decided to use it again for weekend trip. Unfortunately, we were a little disappointed this time. The standard double room we were allocated on the first floor, although being well equipped with nice touches such as free bottled water and bath robes, was showing signs of wear e.g....

Nice modern hotel. Nice room and good food with Italian and Chinese restaurants. Bar food available at a lively bar. Excellently placed for central london and all transport links. A little overpriced.

I was in London for one night to work out our London office nearby. With a number of options available to me through my corporate booking site, I'm glad I picked the Crowne Plaza.

We visited the hotel in November for our annual girly catchup. It was a perfect choice as we were able to have a room large enough to sleep 4, therefore making the room rate very reasonable for London. The hotel itself was lovely, the staff very friendly.

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
